Student Association for Public Health (SAPH)

UNE’s Stu­dent Asso­ci­a­tion for Pub­lic Health was formed in the 2009–2010 aca­d­e­m­ic year by pub­lic health stu­dents aim­ing to open the lines of com­mu­ni­ca­tion between fac­ul­ty and stu­dents, and to par­tic­i­pate in the devel­op­ment of the pub­lic health pro­gram.

SAPH is intend­ed to be the voice of the stu­dents. Par­tic­i­pa­tion in SAPH allows stu­dents to com­mu­ni­cate their thoughts and rec­om­men­da­tions about the pub­lic health cur­ricu­lum. All stu­dents accept­ed into the Pub­lic Health Pro­gram are auto­mat­i­cal­ly grant­ed mem­ber­ship in SAPH.

Mem­ber meet­ings are con­duct­ed online and record­ed, at the direc­tion of the SAPH Pres­i­dent, using the free web-con­fer­enc­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tion tool avail­able through UNE called Black­board Col­lab­o­rate.

The Pres­i­dent of SAPH, or an appoint­ed rep­re­sen­ta­tive, is an invit­ed mem­ber of the SCPH Advi­so­ry Com­mit­tee and SCPH Pro­gram Fac­ul­ty Meet­ings. Stu­dents are encour­aged to for­ward their ideas and dis­cus­sion top­ics to the Pres­i­dent and oth­er offi­cers. Com­ments and sug­ges­tions can also be for­ward­ed direct­ly to the Pro­gram Man­ag­er, Nang H. Tin Maung (
